into the future

…alternatively titled: The Future is Now…

January 3rd, 2008, huh? Pretty weird. Time seems to be moving faster! I guess it is not really speeding up… It is more like when you are on a treadmill and you decide that you need to watch tv, take off your jacket, read a magazine, and take a drink of water all at the same time. It seems like the treadmill is speeding up, but really you are just having a hard time keeping up. Time flies when you are having fun.

2007 was good. I did a lot of things that I am proud of (graduated from UO with my master’s, traveled to Europe, celebrated my fourth wedding anniversary, and got a job which I am really enjoying), but it still doesn’t seem like I fit enough in. Some things (losing those ten pounds, creating art, getting Swap-bot in perfect working order) seem to have gotten pushed onto the 2008 list. Ah, 2008. What an amazingly strange thing. I think I am ready. Into the caverns of tomorrow we must plunge!

  1. i think time really is moving faster than it did in the old days. i believe this to be true because all of my clocks that are over 25 years old run slow…

  2. This is going to be an exciting year! I think I am going to vote for Barak Obama. I just get so excited when I see him talk. He makes me believe this country can be good and achieve greatness. I mean greater then we already are. I saw something quite stupid today at Borders. They were selling Hillary Clinton and Rudolph Guiliani calenders for 2008.

  3. Hi, just wanted to tell you that your blog is SO inspiring to me! Keep up the good work! I put a link to you in my newly-created blog. :] Hope you don’t mind!


  4. I have a theory as to why time passes so quickly. When we are 1 a year is our entire life. By the time we are 30 a year is just 1/30 or our life. Each passing year is less and less time. I wonder how fast a year will pass when we are 90.

    I hope that you have a great ’08
